^My images are ahead in the search I do too, I'm in Thailand and Holgs is in Malaysia I think so that might be why it looks different.  I have very different results on internet explorer though mostly the same files in the top 20 or so but in a different order.

Are you logged in on both browsers?
No just logged in on firefox.  But when I'm logged in to both the search is the same.

Is  your slider in the same place in both? I tried signed in in FF and not signed in in IE, then worked out that the differences were because I've always had the slider at maximum relevancy in FF. When I moved that back to medium, the searches were the same.
But I've also seen very different patterns of results on different searches within FF with the slider at the same place.
I just found a tiny search where my 'exclusive' file is at the bottom, behind non exclusive files with 0 downloads. (Well OK, mine only has 1dl, as its a low-demand subject, but you'd think exclusivity would count for something!)

Nope totally different results with the slider turned all the way up.  For the account I'm logged into my image is number one and for the browser I'm not logged into the images is nearly 2000 back.

Well I think its time to go back to waiting and seeing for me - not much any of us can do about the fallout either way!

Yeah hopefully it gets fixed soon but why are these things always getting rolled out midweek during busy times of the year.  Couldn't they wait two days until the weekend?

You're totally right.
My sales have spiralled so low anyway, I'd hardly notice any difference unless they stopped altogether.

I noticed this last night, much to my detriment.  For the search "paper and backgrounds" I used to have 4 images in the top 50, which was encouraging for me as an independent.  Now they're spread out with one on the first page and rest on pages 4, 6 and 7.  Changing the keyword slider does change things a bit, but not to any significant degree.  And as was stated in an earlier post, I doubt if buyers notice the slider let alone experiment with it.
